Spam: India among the top, China lower down

India has been ranked second in the list of "dirty dozen" spam relaying countries, accounting for over 7% of global junk mails sent during the first quarter of the year, according to a new study by Sophos.

The top dozen include -
United States - 13.1% of the share of junk messages in the world
India - 7.3%
Brazil - 6.8%
South Korea - 4.48%
Vietnam - 3.4%
Germany - 3.2%
